You may have come across the term ‘detox’ a lot in the past few years, especially with regards to juices, teas and diet. However, today we’re going to tell you everything you need to know about skin detox. Considering the amount of makeup, pollution and dirt that sits on your skin each day, a skin detox is the need of the hour.
It’s never too late to start, we are here to help you kick start this healthy skin detoxification habit that will give you clear and radiant skin. Here’s how you can do it…
Get regular facials
Facials are so relaxing and rejuvenating for your body and skin that you need to indulge in one at least twice a month. It removes dirt, blackheads, whiteheads and grime from the deepest layers of the skin, leaving you with soft and smooth skin. It detoxifies the skin and improves blood circulation, bringing a radiant glow to your face.
Deep cleanse twice daily
Invest in a deep cleansing face wash that brings all the dirt to the surface so it can be washed off in the morning and at night. We recommend the Ponds Pure White Anti-Pollution + Purity Face Wash , as its deep cleansing action removes clogged dirt from the pores and gives you radiant and flawless skin.
Apply mud masks
Mud masks absorb excess oil and dirt off your skin, making it soft, supple and smooth to touch. You can add your favourite essential oils to fuller’s earth or multani mitti and apply this twice a week to get maximum benefits.
Drink lots of water
Water is the best natural detoxifier your body and skin can get. Drink as much as 1.5 to 2 litres of water each day to flush out all the toxins. Try putting natural infusers such as cucumber, lemon slices or mint leaves in your water to make drinking water fun and colourful!
Epsom salt baths
After a tiring week your body deserves a long, rejuvenating bath over the weekend. Sprinkle some Epsom salt in your bath water to ease tension, improve circulation, draw out waste from the skin and reduce swelling. Rich in magnesium, it also loosens stiff joints and makes skin soft.
